"these cuts are not smart, they are not fair, t
that massive layoffs could cripple their economies. >> we don't need to wait to see the white in the eyes before we start responding because of the potential that we see. this challenge is real and real right now. >> reporter: well, with the deadline still nine days away, there's still a lot of posturing, and there's no sign that anyone's trying to make a deal. administration tells us that there are no secret talks or negotiations under way. the reason for that, of course, the obama administration thinks it's winning this debate and republican pressure will force republicans to give in. charlie, gayle? >> thanks. >>> cbs political correspondent john dickerson. good morning, john. >> good morning, charlie. >> put this for us in terms of what we're talking about and what we're not talking about. >> it's a good point. step back here. what we're not talking about in this sequester is the actual long-term drivers of this deficit problem so as people look at the fight, which is the 900th chap tur in the con stangt fights of the budget, what's happening is the debate about dumb cuts to a portion
that are going to be not crushing the economy at a time when it is very fragile as it is. so there are certain things i think we can agree upon but right now, there is act absolute gridlock. washington is a mess. we need to work together in a truly bipartisan manner as americans first with our backs against the economic wall. we need to do it together and i don't see anything like that happening anytime soon. sandra: so, kevin, senator brown sounds very doubtful right now. maybe the timing is a little bit different this time around? we're days from the deadline of the sequester on march 1st. maybe now the pssure will help something get done and maybe they will take a second look at the simpson-bowles plan number two? >> we can hope so i think really what is going on here that bowles and simpson are tired of, you know, basically being a front for president obama's inaction and so they have come out with a proposal that, you know, sure there is 600 billion more in tax revenues than republicans would like, but it is not that bad of a proposal compared to certainly what the democrats are proposing
to make the slightest bit of improvement in the economy. gerri: the number for the sequester will be half a percent. we are not even talking about curbing growth, but we are talking about a small backtrack. at the end of the day, we are not talking about a lot of money. but i would like to ask you that the president likes wants to spend $50 billion on infrastructure. didn't he do that just a few years ago? didn't we find that spending on roads and bridges was difficult because shovel ready wasn't so already? >> the stimulus was $800 billion. the president understood at that time that the american people would buy into anything because they were so desperate. the fact of the matter is when we look back on it, there wasn't enough shovel ready jobs. we didn't see what was promised, it has been about 80% almost the entire presidency. the american people are disappointed time and time again. expectations are low. the president taking stimulus, 50 billion. you could say, well, at least it's not 500 billion, that's many that we don't have. >> there is a story about congress having approval ratin

, if you do something to the parent company, that might endanger in the economy. they're saying you get a get out of jail free card. elizabeth warren wrote he about this. i wanted to give a quote from one of the executives at these financial companies and they be have you talk about what it means. he says perhaps someone ought to remind the senator the campaign is over, and she should act accordingly if she wants to be taken seriously. decipher that for me. >> well, i mean, look, the conventional wisdom in washington, and remember, washington is a place that runs on money. money from executives like you just quoted, so the conventional wisdom that that money creates is you can only be serious in washington if you don't ask tough questions of big money. so campaign contributions go in to legislators and the media relies on all sorts of corporate connections to fund it essentially itself, and so the notion of seriousness is wholly manufactured to say that somebody like elizabeth warren who asked a clearly straight forward question, why haven't you prosecuted these people to take that ques

and to our economy. cbp would have to furlough all of its employees reduce overtime, and eliminate hiring to back-fill positions. >> michael: in all, homeland security would lose 5,000 agents. that is a big deal. next up, gun control. the president wants universal background checks but a sequester would make such a system difficult to enact would it would mean cuts in agents and federal attorneys. and then there is education. the president has called for universal preschooling but the sequester would slash $400 million from head start and that means nearly 63,000 children would be dropped from the program. the republicans outlook seems to be, if we can break the economy now, we have bought the presidency in 2016. joining me now is juana summers, she comes to us from washington, d.c. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me back. >> michael: so how damaging actually will these cuts be to the president's second term agenda. >> it's important to note when you talk about sequestration it touches every part of the american economy, big prior advertise t

be with regard to the economy and not both sides being able to go back to constituencies and say truthfully here's where i stood and it happened nevertheless. it benefits the republicans because their mantra is one of we are not going along with spending cuts without tax increases and we can't have tax increases on top of the 600 billion we went along with. the president made a pitch to independence by saying the word compromise. i'm for doing this in a manner that compromises. i think it's going to happen a week from friday without a vote and that is also to the benefit of the members because they won't be held accountable for it. >> is this the new normal that we came to expect? >> yes. >> how washington works and is it how our founding fathers designed our system to work? isn't there a catch 22 here as we beat congress over this and isn't this the way we were designed to work? >> i can't go that far back in history, but in modern times and the time i have been paying attention which is three decades, i don't think the polarization has been anything like it is today. this entire situation is r
the path europe has gone down with a statement economy and cons of unemployment, tons of people taxed to death, or the other path with a more economic freedom and people can decide what they want to do, government isn't taking care of you from cradle to grave and they make that hard choice because this is not sustainable. neil: could also be stating something america's might well come and be willing to pay a little bit more if they have a government that will do a little bit, presumably a lot more and might be okay with it but throwing it out there that it is inevitable, so what are we going to do? >> i think a lot of people pay a little bit more. if you want to the american public and civic and fix everything by putting 20%, everybody would say okay. 25, 26, 27% and cut the investment in the economy and half, a catastrophe for our ki kids. but that is where the money is at a middle-class is where the money is at. neil: i guess i want to get back to the basic math argument because half the people of this country don't pay any federal income taxes. some are military, some of gotten to
that nobody expected to actually go into effect, it's bad management for the macro economy, for large programs, of course, but that said and the recent notes of the market freaking out, it is not doomsday. we have a tendency in washington of wildly overhyping everything we do. this is not like the debt ceiling or even the fiscal cliff. this is not doomsday even if it does happen. it's just stupid and we shouldn't do it. >> ezra, a couple of things here. first of all, for a long time, the stock market and the economy, as from the perspective of working people, have been at least two different things, correct? one thing, you can see the stock market doing fine. that might have a lot more to do with china than what is to happen march 1st. secondly, let's say nothing happens. the unemployment rate is stuck around 8%. this is a pretty lousy time for nothing to happen. in fact, if you look at the cbo projections, the projection with the sequester taking effect is for the unemployment rate to be 7.9% the first half of this year, 8% for the second half of this year. so, basically stuck at a place that
